MRRS - 2017 Venue

The MRRS-2017 Symposium will be held in the capital city of Ukraine that is also the biggest city of the modern Ukraine and the most ancient centre of the East Slavic nationhood and culture.

Kiev is located at the banks of the Dnieper River and counts its history from 6th century. Now its population is about 3 million. Kiev has innumerable architectural, historical and culture treasures. It has a lot of universities and large scientific community, the Presidium and many research institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine are situated in Kiev.

During the last several years the face of the city was significantly renewed, many old buildings and streets were repaired and restored, and a lot of new objects for tourists are created.

Kiev can be easily reached by many direct flights from Amsterdam, Beijing, Berlin, Budapest, Deli, Frankfurt, Istanbul, London, Moscow, Munich, New York, Paris, Prague, Rome, Vienna, Warsaw, Zurich, and many other cities all over the world.

The venue of MRRS-2017 will be the campus of the National Aviation University (NAU), one of the largest universities in Ukraine (established in 1933). Before the collapse of the USSR this huge technical University was the main source of engineers of all aviation profiles including the wide field of avionics for all the USSR and other countries of Eastern and Central Europe, Africa, Latin America, Middle East, South-Eastern Asia, etc. Now the profile of the University is much wider. The University has a spacious campus with convenient connection with the central part of Kiev. Majority of the buildings have been recently repaired. The University has all necessary conditions and experience to conduct successful conference event.

The meeting is to be held in the conference halls and lecture auditoriums of NAU. They have white screens and blackboards. The papers are supposed to be presented using PC projectors. The overhead projectors for transparences are also available. The Internet facilities will be available for the participants of the Workshop for free. Coffee breaks are to be organized in the nearby space. Luncheons are to be served in the University restaurant.

Title: “POLARIZATION IMAGING FOR REMOTE SENSING

Capturing the polarization state of light reflected or emitted by objects in a scene can not only reveal valuable information about their geometrical, physical, chemical, physiological, and/or metabolic properties but also greatly simplify a wide range of remote sensing applications. Commercially available CMOS cameras, which are essentially designed to image the world in terms of intensity and color, can be made polarization-sensitive by coating individual photo-sensing pixels with micron-scale polarizer elements, which is also known as the division of focal plane polarimeters (DoFP). In this paper, we first present a liquid crystal (LC) based fabrication technique for full-Stokes polarization imaging. The proposed micro-polarimeter is fabricated by patterning an LC layer on top of a visible-regime metal-wire-grid polarizer using non-contact photo-alignment technique. This arrangement enables the formation of both micron-scale LC polarization rotators and quarter wavelength retarders, which can be integrated on top of a CMOS image sensor for real-time polarization imaging. In addition, DoFP polarization image sensors capture polarization properties of light at every imaging frame. However, these imaging sensors capture only partial polarization information, resulting in reduced spatial resolution output and a varying instantaneous field of overview (IFoV). Interpolation methods are used to reduce the drawbacks and recover the missing polarization information. As a result, we propose residual interpolation as an alternative to normal interpolation for DoFP image sensors, where the residual is the difference between an observed and a tentatively estimated pixel value. Our results validate that our proposed algorithm using residual interpolation can give state-of-the-art performance over several previously published interpolation methods, namely bilinear, bicubic, spline and gradient-based interpolation.

Title:  “FROM RADIOGRAPHY TO TOMOGRAPHY 3D SENSOR ARRAY RECEPTORS

The history of sensors array (SA) X-ray radiography receptors development shows a big possibility in characteristics optimization and stable position of SA receptors on world market. New generation of SA receptors has 3D architecture. That allows to optimize parameters of CMOS SA receptors for fluoroscopic, linear and cone beam tomography units. Extra big field of view and frame rate (more than 300 fps) of CMOS SA receptors gives unique possibility for system development.

Title: “ADAPTING THE METHOD OF ANALYTICAL REGULARIZATION TO COMPUTATIONAL WAVE OPTICS

The method of analytical regularization (MAR) is the conversion of electromagnetic field problems to the Fredholm second kind integral equations (IEs) and finally to the Fredholm second-kind infinite-matrix equations. It is still underestimated in computational optics and photonics despite many remarkable merits, which we discuss taking into account specific features of material properties of metals and dielectrics in the visible range and graphene in THz and infrared ranges. In these ranges, perfect electrical conductors (PEC) cannot be used to approximate realistic scatterers. Therefore the most reliable computational instrument is the Muller IE for a penetrable body. It is also possible to modify the solutions based on MAR, previously developed in the scattering by PEC zero-thickness screens, to analyze thinner-than-wavelength material screens: resistive, dielectric, and impedance. This opens a way for a numerically exact analysis of not only the scattering but also the absorption of THz and optical waves by the penetrable and impenetrable scatterers made of graphene, dielectrics and metals.
